Indescribable.

Watching on TV I see a lot of people, anchors, reporters, affected.

Sunday Nite at halftime of the Pitts-Dallas Game the CBS news anchor just sat there as he kept talking his eyes filling, his voice remaining so steady I had to look at his eyes carefully. Bravura demonstration of professionalism and humanity

Today Eric Bolling almost lost it on the 5.

You see these pictures and then everything gets lost.

These parents are looking at the clothes still in the dressers. The mark of the kids height on a doorway from September's first day of school. Thinking about not picking them up at school anymore. Christmas.
No dates or proms.
No marriage.
No college.
No careers.

And then thinking, when they see all that and think all that ...'it hasn't even hit me yet.' An open door to black grief and unending horror.

I believe in God. Some - THING. Something/someone that put it all here.

Because I do, I have some HARD QUESTIONS. And I think we deserve the answers.

Assuming you are omniscient. Omnipotent. Out there. Knowing. Seeing. Sitting there.

Maybe you just said.. 'okay, you have all you need. It's on you.'

Not good enough, Big Fella.
Friday was a moment for intercession.
A car accident. Wrap that prick around a tree. Blow out. That's all.

We don't need a crew of angels and the Connecticut river to divide. An accident would have been enough. Even a cop pulling that prick over for a bad turn signal might have been enough.
"Say buddy, whatcha doing with that assault weapon in the back seat, sir?"

This, though?

I have serious questions. These kids were not some collateral damage in a war.

This one is not like Va Tech, or Batman, or even Columbine, or any of them all the way back to the U of Texas Tower sniper. This one is infinitely horrible.

An alien with human DNA.
An act of satanesque exquisiteness.

Dear All,

This shouldn't have happened. Not in the States. Not anywhere in the World.

My condolences.
